I was looking at a GS but I didn't want to come across as a 'Ewan or Charley' wannabe.
Nice bikes all the same - and plenty of accessories.
The ex-army MT350's (or the older MT500's) are good sturdy bikes. I had a 500 for a while before I got my Tenere.
They are made to be easy to work on - you just need to be good with a hammer and a screwdriver!!!
